After joining the Krsna consciousness movement in 1978 in Miami Florida, Vijaya prabhu was soon asked to distribute books. In 1983, he was asked to be the Sankirtan leader, and the Miami temple quickly became a top book distribution center in the country. In 1991, he went to Los Angeles to increase book distribution . There he served for several years, and in 2002, the Global Body Commission asked Vijaya prabhu to be its International Minister of Book Distribution and travel worldwide. Seeing this as an opportunity to increase his service, he accepted, and fortunately book distribution has increased worldwide.
